Re: Game 17: Massachusetts, Sunday Jan 15, 2:30pm NBCSN

While I agree completely with Rod on Jarvis and think our fans don't give him enough credit and are too quick to get on him, I disagree with him on Dowtin to the extent he is down on him (which is my impression from what he's said about him here).

Re: URI report on Channel 12 tonight at 5

Good. If the state kicked in the money to underwrite the costs of educating its own kids, as it is intended to work at a state university, then that number would go down (and in the long run the state's economy would improve).

Yeah, and DH doesn't read this board. He gets credit for that end of game in bounds. That is what you do. Throw it over half court with 2 seconds left. Make adjustments with the starting lineup. This team was preseason Top 25. Some people think we have a bullseye on Dan. No we don't. He just needs ...

I have a problem with the way they are officiating Holloway. When Shaq was playing they said that guys would get away with fouling him because he was so much bigger that refs would let it all go. Holloway gets the opposite treatment. Trying to defend him with the ball is an automatic foul in this ga...

Re: Hockey enthusiast letter to Projo-Scrap Football at URI

You can't compare UMass and UConn to URI. They enroll twice as many students as URI and they are in states with resources that dwarf RI's. UMass enrolled 29k students and Mass's GDP is $500B; UConn enrolls 31k and Conn's GDP is $260B; URI enrolls 16k and its GDP is $55B.
